DJ's Story...
DJ is a 1 year old male pit bull mix. DJ came to us as a stray so we don't know a whole lot about his history. We do know that when he came in he had fly bites all over the top of his head and fly strike in his ears. Now that he is healed up and looking handsome, DJ is searching for his forever home! DJ would prefer a home without any other pets. He would do fine in a home with children as long as the parents understand that DJ is a family member, not a toy for children. DJ LOVES stuffed toys and will toss them around all day! He has medium level of energy so daily walks should keep him happy. DJ is still a puppy so he will need consistent training to help him learn basic commands. If DJ sounds like the right fit for your family please come by the shelter and visit him today!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

DJ, a Colonial Heights American Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Colonial Heights, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Colonial Heights.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Colonial Heights already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Colonial Heights breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even American Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Colonial Heights paves the way for another one to be saved.
